i like double decker carriers
During the WW II era, the Japanese built three massive weapons systems which turned out to be not to be beneficial to their war effort: 1. Super battle ships: Yamato and Mushashi;2. Super carries Shinano; and,3. Super submarines I-400, I-401, etc.The employment of all three systems were mismanaged and was a total waste of resources.
Shinano was the largest carrier until the commissioning of the USS Forrestal (CV-59)
Did you just copy from wikipedia? The whole thing?
behold the biggest example of the Japanese Navy inability to understand damage control
Can't tolerate this horrible monotone cyber voice. Truly distructive.
I think you found it from the internet and read it
There is a great article in National Interest today on this. Around 15,000 words, it took me an hour to read, but as a sub geek, it was an amazing story.
Will you do more?
I want Yamato Musashi and Shinano recovered and rebuilt! They were beautiful!
its crazy to think that this could have been a sister of Yamato and Musashi… look at the front of the bow… it literally has the same model as the two sisters…. the plan was to have 3 super weapons… called Yamato, Musashi and Shinano which is later converted to a carrier as you can see on the video
Izs was nedded to be in yamato class but it got to be aircraft carrier.
The computer generated voice is gruesome!
What the fuck is this garbage?
She could have been saved ,but because of an inexperienced crew, and command negligence,she was sunk
I could understand the Japanese converting the Shinano to an aircraft carrier. The U.S did the same thing. Converting some Cleveland class cruisers into the Independence class aircraft carrier's. Or better known as light carriers (CVL's). As well as the many CVE's. So were the Saratoga, Lexington, kaga And the Akagi all four being laid down as battle cruisers and converted to aircraft carrier's.
This is impossible to listen to. Why didn't you have a human read it?
My wife, Elaine, had the privilege of typing Captain Joe Enright's memoir around 40 years ago. He was a real gentleman.
